Meal Ideas for a one year old

my son isnt eating the way he used to and we usually dont give him what we are eating bcuz its stuff i dont like him eating like pork or spicy food. plus we eat late when dh comes and by that time he should be going to bed. anyways i would love to see what others do for their one year old or two year olds.

TIA

Re: Meal Ideas for a one year old

Have you tried any of those little Gerber toddler meals?? They had them on sale for $1 at Albertsons the other day and they have soups and pasta meals. They also have the little toddler meals with an entree & veggie or fruit and my kids liked em. You could always heat up some left overs from the night before?? Or even just different soups and cut up the chunky stuff really good. They have some really neat individual stuff now targeted towards single adults (biscuits, frozen veggies, hot dogs...)

Re: Meal Ideas for a one year old

my daughter is going to turn one in two weeks and she eats a variety-

ravioli with parm. sprinkled on (I buy the kind in the fridge section at the market)
fish sticks
pancakes/waffles with fruit
veggies mixed in with mac and cheese
chicken and pasta
ground beef with veggies
cubed tofu and veggies
grilled cheese sandwiches
hotdogs (usually just at daycare)
mashed posato with broc. and cheese or another combo

also, when I make something I'll save a but pre-seasoning for her dinner the next night. I buy a lot of the gladware containers that are smaller (1/4 cup I think) and put it away for her. Perfect little portion.

I started getting deli meat cut at a "10" so it's thicker and then I can cut it up into easy strips/cubes when we get home

I've tried making little baby quesidillas and they went over okay but she had more fun flinging them because they'd fly across the room like frisbees.

Re: Meal Ideas for a one year old

my dd LOVES these:

Spinach Nuggets

2 10 oz. boxes frozen chopped spinach (I am sure you could use fresh steamed spinach also)
3 T butter
1 c wheat bread crumbs
1 c grated parmesan
2 eggs, beaten

Cook spinach according to package directions, drain, and squeeze out excess water
Add butter to spinach and let melt
Add bread crumbs, cheese, and then eggs. Mix well
Form into small balls, and then flatten on cookie sheet
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.


Julie's Notes: This recipe made about 20 or so nuggets, and he can only eat 2 at a sitting, so I froze the rest. Then when I need to make something fast for him, I take two out of the freezer bag, and pop them in the microwave. Charlie likes applesauce with his.

Love the spinach nuggets idea. I but you could do it with chopped broccoli too.

My kids love finger foods. Toast, toaster waffles, carrots, cut up meat, mac and cheese, Usually whatever we eat I give them some. I usually give them a piece of fruit too. They love it.

Re: Meal Ideas for a one year old

yes...any kind of soft veggie (squash, broccoli, mushed green beans) will work just fine! add more bread crumbs to get the right texture!

Re: Meal Ideas for a one year old

My 1 yr old still eats jarred 2nd stage baby food. But for lunch he eats a jar of food and then crackers or dry cereal. A cheese sandwich is his favorite.

Re: Meal Ideas for a one year old

I work full time so I pack breakfast and lunch for my kids.

For Breakfast they get homemade whole wheat pancakes, french toast or waffles. I make a double or triple batch on Sat or Sun and freeze them in baggies, easy to grab a serving. With that they have some fresh fruit bananas, strawberries, pears, peaches, grapes, kiwi, oranges, plums, etc.

For lunch they always have yogurt with a veggie (green beans, peas, carrots, broccoli, asparagus) and a fruit.

Dinners at home are:
whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce or butter
Cheese quesadilla (in the microwave, nice and easy)
tilapia fillet with a blend of Puerto Rican seasonings (Sage will eat anything I perpare with this seasoning, she loves it. It is a mix of Adobo and Sofrito)

or meals with us and whatever we are eating
including steak, pork chops, chicken fillet, spaghetti, lasagna, spaghetti pie, anything cut into small pieces

Snacks:

Cheese Sticks
Cheese slices
Rice Cakes
sesame street organic crackers
fruit (can you tell we love fruit!)
craisens
